March TIF

Just a day late this month. The first photo shows the front & back sections. The fabrics are all silks on a base of pellon with a layer of dyed flannelet over it. I’ve placed strips of various silks over the base with the sheer ones last. Then appliqued the flowers on top using vliesofix before stitching. The background is quilted with free motion swirls. Detail pics below.

April TIF

Sharon has posted the colours for April and again they are definitely not colours I like to work with. In fact browns are my least favourite but last night I found this strip quilted piece I did ages ago which has pretty much the right colours. So my challenge will be to embellish it with stitch etc. to try and make it acceptable as a bag fabric. I really don’t want to start something new with these colours.

  1. Love your March piece. Stunning! I’m with you on browns. But the colors I saw in the picture included blues, greens and yellows which add a lot of sparkle to the palette so I may do something there. It’s great you get to use an old piece; maybe you’ll like it more when you are done “change”ing it.

  2. Your March piece is really beautiful. I love the colors and all of the detail stitching.

    I think you have a really good start on April with your strip quilt. I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
